One of the best parts of our job is seeing a wedding become a marriage of different cultures. Special rituals, customs, and traditions bond two people together in a way that happens once in a lifetime. With this idea in mind, we are excited to introduce Rashna, our Bride & Blossom Featured Bride for March. “The Indian culture is beautiful and something that I think more people should be exposed to,” says Rashna. “What better way to celebrate my culture that at my wedding?” She and Sean exchanged vows on a beautiful day at the Bronx Zoo.

Photographer Kim Mancuso

 

The power of a photograph to conjure memories and emotions from the most important times in our lives is undeniable. This is especially true for wedding photographs. Since childhood, Kim Mancuso has had a fascination for the captured image and its ability to share experiences and stories. We were first introduced to Kim’s work through BB Featured Bride Kristen’s summer wedding at Trumpet at The Gate. From the intimate moments to the grand gestures, her photographs were an authentic expression of the day from beginning to end.

Kim just launched her new photography website. With the Spring/Summer wedding season just around the corner, we thought it would be a great idea to interview Kim for our Women Paving the Aisle series. Here, she talks about her professional journey, unique approach to photographing weddings, building trust with clients, and creative inspirations.

Ever since Mandy Moore’s wedding last year, we’ve been obsessed with the pampas grass wedding trend. Soft, natural, and available in colors ranging from white to whispery pink, it can be worked in to just about every decor element. For her private backyard ceremony, Mandy Moore used pampas grass to capture a feminine boho vibe. But it can be used to express a variety of wedding styles ranging from whimsical to sophisticated. Thinking of incorporating pampas grass in to your big day celebrations? We’ve got you covered!

Wedding Backdrop

Pampas grass brings luxurious volume and texture to the wedding backdrop, creating a scene guests will be talking about long after the vows are exchanged. Go wild with a rich and sprawling aisle and archway in a neutral palette. A circular arch of soft pink and beige stems combined with lush greenery and blossoms radiates heavenly romance. White pampas grass, blooms, and greenery arranged on a geometric backdrop is the perfect marriage of bohemian and modern styles.

Given Hilary’s taste for glitz and glamour, it comes as no surprise that she celebrated saying “I Do” with a reception comparable to the fabulous parties F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote about in The Great Gatsby. There was luxurious décor, sparklers, pulsating music, and a showstopping 5-tier wedding cake. Here, the bride talks about the final chapter in her Real BB Wedding story.

After a preliminary round of toasts during cocktail hour, guests found their seats via a captivating escort card table and made their way to the Plaza’s ballroom. There, the vibrant pink color scheme gave way to white and gold. “Brad wanted an all white ballroom, which I thought was a nice idea to keep everything romantic,” Hilary says. “The Plaza is marked by gold ornamentation on the ceilings and walls. There was something so beautiful and elegant about having clean white.”

February is the month of love. We’re not just saying this because every drug store in New York City is heavily stocked with Valentine’s Day chocolates right now. Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the harsh post-holiday reality of January has finally settled and we are starting see things clearer, with our hearts and minds. Or maybe the cold weather has us searching for comfort and good company. There’s just something about this time of year that feels romantic and warm.

Heading into the holiday season, we couldn’t think of anyone better to have as our featured bride for December than Lorenza. She and Pete celebrated saying “I do” on an enchanted winter’s day at the New York Botanical Garden. Here, Lorenza shares the first part of their love story.

In a time when casual dating via social apps is like a sport, Lorenza wanted something with more substance. Looking back, she says, “It was the busiest time of my professional career.
